creep that occurred under bush and has accelerated under obama has made it very difficult to expand in areas where you typically find high wage blue collar jobs, in transportation, energy extraction and so on. i hope rick will be pleased to hear that i'm not blaming this entirely on president obama. >> well, on the other hand, mike, president obama's solution to all this and they're saying it in europe, the imf is saying it, is to have this global wealth tax, to tax the rich more, to bring the rich down, that will help income disparity. what do you think of that plan? >> as we've seen under president obama, david, the exact opposite happens. one of the areas where obama has really hurt the economy is with small businesses. his investment tax increase really hurts small business. it went from 35% to 43% on passive income. this really is an usual. during expansions you typically see new business startups accelerate. this is the only recovery i've seen back to the 1930s where new business startups have flat lined. when you increase tax rates on them you don't get that capital. all that

premiums. we're also going to find out in january that more people will lose their insurance under obama care, i think, than will actually gain it. the republican plan is freedom of choice. more choices, not less. obama care narrows your choices. we're for competition. we're for selling insurance across state lines. and above all, we're for driving premiums down. the problem under the old system was premiums were too high. under obama care the premiums are even higher. i don't see any way obama care can work. >> let me turn to another subject. drones. last march you famously took to the senate floor for 13 hours to filibuster a nomination because of your opposition to the military use of drones to attack u.s. citizens. this week, as i'm sure you know, jeff bezos, the head -- we're looking at a picture of the drone right there -- of amazon announced that they have plans, a hope, maybe five years down the road, that drones would come pick up a package, a book, a sweater, and deliver it to your front door where you could -- you could take it instead of a delivery truck. when you see that, a
. >> i think he's on probably better ground than obama care which is underwater and obama is under water. in 2014, they're going to have to quarantine this guy in the white house, because he will be hemlock to democrats running for the senate. he's already a drag in many of these states. and, again, whereas i say he had some effective aneck dotes here. i don't see how he wins the macro element because there are so many elements going wrong in the whole program. >> he should have said the republican ideas are bad ideas. instead, he said there were never any. he gets caught once again in saying something that's not right. that's just not true. >> what does he do though? when he goes after somebody the republicans say we do have ideas. we got this, that and the other, and if he's in a debate like that, he's in a better debate than he is with the morning papers saying another disaster's occurred. >> so any way, what happens with all this? >> you know, i don't see how this thing ends. i really don't. i think he's determined. he's going to veto. >> he said he's determined. >> he's going to vet
or not they are receiving or getting paid. >> they are getting paid or whether or not the insured is insured under obama care. >> and back to the previous question here. if you think you have signed up and enrolled and done everything right and find out in january and february that something was missing and fell through the cracks. are you loibl for the fine? >> that is a clear implication here. in this case, it is buyer beware on so many levels. and where there seems to be usually with this administration great compunction and care for justice, there seems to be next to none when it comes to obama care. there is a danger in focusing on the technical issues that are with the flawed and fundmentally loused up website. and on the political issues here. the fact is, americans who are relying now on obama care for health care insurance, don't know if they are indeed insured or whether or not the system is working for them. the bigger questions is how in the world will we pay for it all? >> that comes for 2014 and beyond. we'll see you later on and so how the president explains this, to. >> private sector ve
a couple of days ago. tens of thousands of americans who think they have health insurance under obama care may discover january 1 that they do not. after days of refusing to release the stats on the problems that have been plaguing health care.gov the administration has announced under pressure from the press that the enrollments of 1 of every 4 people in the months of october and november were botched. at least one of every four. now since then they say at least one of every ten federal applications have had problems, since the fix. they think the number is higher in the state exchanges. a reporter pressed the agency in charge of the exchanges, the federal exchange for a solution to the mess. people think they have the coverage. they don't have the coverage. the insurer has a botched form. it doesn't have a name so it can't call the person to tell them, it didn't work for you. here was the answer. >> but you're not saying everyone should call. you're not suggesting urging them strongly despite the fact you are talking about a potential one in ten error rate going forward? >> i would encou
court. >>> remember the president's promise that you could keep your doctor under obama care? well, now the chief architect of that plan seemingly altering the storyline yet once again. watch ezekiel emanuel with chris wallace with the new caveat. >> the president never said you were going to have unlimited choice of any doctor in the country you want to go to. if you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. this is a matter of choice. we know in all sorts of places you pay more for certain -- for a wider range of choices or wider range of benefits. >> joining us now, guy benson, fox news contributor and political editor at townhall.com. guy, that is not what the president promised. he did not come out and say that you can keep the doctor that you like for the last 3 1/2 years in his stump speeches, he never added that caveat that you'll have to pay more for it. right? >> the administration's revisionism is head spinning. and you watch that clip and that exchange from "fox news sunday" yesterday and it really does speak for itself. this preside
or disprove of obama care. 57% disapprove. they were asked if they believe things will worsen under obama care with. look at this. they want him out of office. 40% want him out. so you look at these cumulatively, they have picked up on congresswoman how the law is impacting everybody. why won't we hit the reset button. why doesn't anybody want to do that? >> we keep trying n. the house we continually go to the floor and vote to repeal and replace a different component of this. you know, they get so upset they will say, we have 40 votes, 50 to do that. what the american p want. it's what our constituents want. coast to coast we hear the law doesn't work. it is too expensive to afford. it is decreasing access, increasing cost. they want to make sure and this is limiting their ability to do so. they don't want government making the choices for them. this is what's happening. people don't like it. >> let's go to the hearings today. we learned among other things the website fix -- and we'll have experts on next. the website fix made security for those people that go on it worse. help me out. is tha
whose baby was denied coverage under obama care? >> those family plan quotes included myself, my wife, our 7, 5, and 7-year-old, and 18 month-old was left off. the response was no, they don't allow family plans under the age of 8. >> this guy tried to sign his family up for insurance on the new york state exchange and they refused to enroll his 18 month-old baby? obama care is anti-toddler? the story, as you might imagine, got a lot of pickup in the right wing media. the post surfaced again and again all over conservative press and of course landed distraught father on fox news. even the house speaker john boehner climbed on board the obama hates toddlers bandwagon, after saying he learned obama wouldn't cover his baby. now, hearing this story you may ask yourself the question any journalist writing the story or producer doing a segment about it, or any person with just basic common sense would be asking, could it possibly be the case that obama was denying coverage to a toddler? well, the answer, that very good question is no, of course not. of course not, that is not true. a spokesp
under president obama. bill: 54-56% disapprove to how the president is handling foreign policy. 2/3 in that pew survey believe americans view greater involvement in the global economy is a greater thing. meaning when america is a strong country it's better for the world. >> we have seen that throughout history. and when we see economies like china coming up it's important to have our own economy keep going. people like to complain about america, but when something happens in the world, the philippines, the typhoon there, when something happens in the world guess who is the first country to go, the united states military and the charities. we are divide as a country on political lines. republicans and democrats are split on how they see our influence in the world. the democrats believe the president has broken his promises. he said we would leave iraq, afghanistan and close guantanamo bay. republicans are saying don't be apologizing for guantanamo bay when you are on foreign tour. bill: what do you think the apology tour did to our view of ourselves in the world? >> when you have t
look at the pew poll the majority of americans under 25 want obama out of office. to me that's revealing. >> how do you respond? don't you think the president's main promises regurgitated over and over again, look at his honest and trustworthiness numbers. they are horrible. the core constituency. hispanic americans. he lost 23 points with another core constituency. a year ago it was 75%. now it's 52%. at what point do you think he lied. admit it. speak the truth. this is the truth. >> i think what we are seeing is across the board. >> why is it? the partisan politics across the board -- >> emily, did the president lie. >> approval ratings of the president, 19%. >> americans aren't going for that excuse. the president had the white house for two years and democrats controlled the congress. they should have gotten something done then. they focused on obama care. look. it's a disaster. they didn't try to go after the economy. they should have tried to fix the economy. instead they focused time on a broken program by pulling in conservative concepts into a health care plan. >> t
's claim that you can keep your own doctor under obama care, when in fact, many insurance plans have only limited lists of doctors and hospitals to choose from. >> if you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. this is a matter of choice. we know in all sort of choices, you pay more for a wider range of choices or benefits. the issue isn't the selective networks. people keep saying, oh, the problem is you're going to have a selective network. >> well, if you lose your doctor or your hospital -- >> people are going to have a choice whether they want to pay a certain amount for a selective network or pay more for a broader network. >> also today, insurance brokers are complaining they're having trouble helping their clients sign up for obama care because of problems with information at the back end of that troubled enrollment process. >> issues, issues. still abound. thanks, steve. good to see you. >> jamie, it's a national day of prayer and reflection in south africa. for former president nelson mandela. people gathering outside mandela's house i
of life and what we stand for around the globe. there's no doubt that under president obama our country has call a new what i'll normal -- slow economic growth, high unemployment, stagnant wages. gwen: take your pick at what you want to believe but at the root of this is a certain amount of disillusionment which runs deep, michael. >> there are dynamics in the were there before the downturn that continue to evidence themselves and the big problem is how do you divide the economic pie? it goes back to the problems of the late 1970's where the people are getting more of the pie and working people are getting less. it used to be that unlettered people could get a good living wage in this country and that's changing a lot. the difference between a living wage and minimum wage? >> it's grown bigger. wage is enough money to raise a family on and you think about the key things in our economy that someone has to do to raise a family -- education, healthcare -- these are the most inhat have gone up price meanwhile wages have been flat over the last 12, 13 years, real wages have been flat and ins
-pays and deductibles triple under obama care. i'm thrilled to death, as you can tell. >> so domenico, we know everyone covered it when he finally signed up for health care without delay on the website. that was before the fix. but what do we know regarding his premiums and what he said today. >> that's about the extent of it, tamron. we know earlier he had tried to sign up, and they made a little bit of a show of it where the site had frozen up. this is part of the republican effort to use individual stories. now the speaker is using himself to say that in some cases, for some people, their premiums are going to go up. conversely, we're seeing the president come at this from the other angle and talk about people with pre-existing conditions and people who do benefit from the law. you know, so we have these two sides going at each other, not necessarily talking about how bad the website is anymore, obviously. because he was able to get through. now they're back to sort of the older talking points that we'd been hearing in the lead-up to this. >> regarding numbers and more information, we didn't get tha
triple under obama care. i'm thrilled to death, as you can tell. >> next up, we talk about this fast approaching deadline, sticker shock and the threat to millions of seniors who may also lose their doctors. get ready, folks. we're just minutes away from the first ever "the kudlow report" youth summit. for real college kids, how about that, four real college kids are going to join me live on set to talk about what they think of president obama and obama care and whether they are going to sign up or not. you don't want to miss it. free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. i will ask these college kids. what do they think about free market capitalism? we'll be right back. >>> so this law is already making a difference for millions of young people and it's about to help millions more. about half a million people across the country already are poised to gain coverage on january 1st. some for the very first time. >> all right. welcome back to "the kudlow report." that, of course, president obama on his obama care marketing blitz, leading up to the fast approaching december 23
. that is what we spent with the obama administration. do you realize that infrastructure under obama has actually gone down by one-third? where the money go? that is what we want to know. melissa: infrastructure spending has gone down? >> we are actually spending less on infrastructure. i thought we were having all of this shovel ready projects that we were supposed to be doing. only 26 billion, i believe, of the 80 billion went toward infrastructure. the rest went to a lot of different types of programs that have not stimulated the economy, nor has this fix a lot of my bridges. melissa: what about you? are the roads and bridges crumbling where you are? have you just given up? i am not going to drive, not going to pay any more federal taxes. i guess we will just a taxing my bicycle. >> eleven washington dc. of course the roads are crumbling in the nation's capital. my big worry is that we are going to turn to something like a carbon tax because government is so desperate for revenue these days that they are looking at that as ne of the biggest tax increases in history. this going to be

out of thin air. there are about five different constitutional violations there. under obama care, he extended the employer mandate for a year, even though the law says shall commence in each month there after through december 2013. he extended the individual mandate, stretched it out. now the small package plans, he declared the senate to not be in session, to make his recess appointments, and the constitution says that the senate shall make its own rules. that is just some of the violations we have. it is a long list from this president, an uber president with no respect or little respect for the constitution itself, sean. >> all right, so you have a president re-writing laws at a whim. and he is not using the traditional historical checks and balances and separation of powers. then he is re-writing laws and enforcing other laws. then he decides, well, i don't care if you're in session or not. congressman, what do you think? any other areas you think of? >> well, listen, the take care clause requires the president to faithfully execute all the laws. it is established principle of co

has been attacked. and i have no idea how badly it would become under obama care where all of those trends are really accentuated. the reason i left was a very parochial, very personal reason is that even though medicine is a wonderfully noble life, i felt outside the walls of the hospital there was history going on, as i know you know as your involvement in politics. you want to be involved in that, because so much, so much of other people's lives depend on getting it right. >> this book, in many ways, i think introduced people to who you are. they see you on special report. they know what you think. they know what you believe. they read your columns, but the personal side of charles krauthammer had never really been revealed like this. was there any reluctance to sort of open yourself up like that because of the background of psychiatry, did that have anything to do with it at all? >> i'm not sure that that's the reason. i think it's because, you know, when i write my column, i try not to use the word i. this is in contrast to a certain president of the united states who can't cle
